Strikeforce weigh-ins: news and notes’s Eddie Constantine and Matt De La Rosa were on hand at the The Hotel DeAnza to witness the Strikeforce:Destruction weigh-ins Thursday night.

Twenty-four year old thoroughbred Cory “The One” Devela (9-1) will bid for his eighth consecutive victory when he takes on what is arguably his most dangerous challenge to date, heavy-handed Terry Martin (17-5), in a middleweight (185 lb. limit) contest during Strikeforce’s mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza at the world-famous Playboy Mansion on Saturday, September 20th.
